The Artist's Way

So... In between moving, trying to find a new place to live, getting re-settled, working and writing a press release for an upcoming show at the Gallery on Greene, I decided it was time to retake a class.

Took it a few years ago which helped me start painting again. Thought about taking it again before I left on my trip cause I need to get more comfortable with my art being seen and really putting it out there. I've got an opportunity to illustrate a children's book and have been blocking it for some reason. Determined to remove the block, I signed up for the course.

I waited and waited on it cause I will have to miss some classes due to work. Thought I might do it on my own but the structure and interaction of class have a lot more oomph to it.

As I started the process of moving out of the place I've been in, Salvation Army arrived to pick up the bed and there was so much movement happening all at once, it was kinda perfect that the Studios of Key West called exactly at that moment to find out if I was in.

I decided to do it and am so glad I did. The group is great and think I'm going to get a lot out of it. It's exactly what I needed.

Going to start dismantling my studio today. More importantly going to get some supplies and my desk today.

Time to take everything to the next level.
